What is the effect if the centre of gravity is behind the aft limit in level and forward flight?
  • A
    The stability is increased.
  • B
    The controllability is decreased.
  • C
    The control forces are increased.
  • D
    The stability is decreased.

Refer to figure.
Center of gravity locations:

If CG is more aft than the limit, airplane will have reduction in stability.

If Cg is more forward than the limit, endurance will decrease.
